To table of contents
B 271 begins in the Pfalz nearly the crying race German in the geographical center, to which it was in former times generally identical between new city and bucking home. Since ever more by-passes are created, this is the case only, where such evasions are still missing. In bucking home the German crying race does not only end, there changes also B 271 after 33 km of the Pfalz to Rhinehesse. Altogether however it pulls parts through of the pfälzischen and Rhine-hessian Weinbaugebietes in its entire process and follows thereby in the southern Rhinehesse of the Bruchkante of the upper Rhine ditch lying west.
most important parallel distance of B 271 is the federal motorway 61 (Speyer - Koblenz), which in the pfälzischen south part throughout 10 - 15 km east runs, B 271 in Rhinehesse ever more approximates and it with Alzey finally in northwest direction crossed. There, at the motorway interchange Alzey, crosses also A 63 (Kaiserslautern - Mainz) B 271, from southwest to northeast. Northeast from new city exists besides a binding of B 271 to A 65 (Ludwigshafen on the Rhine - Karlsruhe).
Furthermore - from south to north - the following roads of rectangular cross:
- B 39 (Franconia stone - Speyer) into new city
- B 37 (Kaiserslautern - Ludwigshafen) into bath Dürkheim
- A 6 (Kaiserslautern - Mannheim) into green city
- B 47 (Kirchheimbolanden - Worms) into Monsheim
- B 420 (Bad Kreuznach - Nierstein) into Woerrstadt
in addition flows into Alzey from southwest B 40 coming from Kirchheimbolanden.
B 271 leads on its entire length by landschaftlich delightful hill country, which is used because of its mild climate almost exclusively for the viticulture. This is first - within the range of the German crying race - the Haardt, those the transient area from the Rhine level to the Haardtgebirge and the Pfälzer forest and/or. mountain country to the Nordpfälzer represents. In the northern part then the Rhine-hessian hill country follows, behind which to the west too no higher mountains lie more.
during the warm months B 271 takes place as well as on each weekend somewhere a celebration on the distance - it likes fair, Kerwe or wine celebration are called. To the most important belong the Dürkheimer sausage market, the German wine read celebration in new city, the almond bloom celebration in Gimmeldingen as well as the city wall celebration in Freinsheim.
